O! Will you be staying,

Or will you be flying?

Your ponies are straying!

The daylight is dying!

To fly would be folly,

To stay would be jolly

And listen and hark

Till the end of the dark

to our tune

ha ha! - Welcoming Song of the Elves of Rivendell, The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

I've always loved snooping on houses for sale on Zillow. Over the past couple of weeks, I've shown you my favorite cozy house for sale in Temple, as well as the most expensive house for sale in Temple.

Today, we're taking a (virtual) trip to a little piece of Middle-earth right here in Central Texas.

You'll have to pardon my nerdiness, by the way. With all the heavy stuff happening the world right now, I've been escaping into the work of J.R.R. Tolkien, re-reading The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings. The books have always been good for my heart when times are tough.

I promise I didn't go looking for an Elven house in Temple. Destiny just led my nosy self to the right place on Zillow, and I found a place on Tumblweed Trail that looks like guest quarters at Elrond's House in Rivendell.

This 4 bedroom, 3 bath house at 713 Tumbleweed Trail will cost you about $294,900. It's in a great neighborhood and has a beautiful yard, so if you're looking for a place to settle down in Temple, get in touch with Thomas Sandifer at RE/MAX.

Let's take a look inside, shall we?
